A long strange trip..
I was 16 and I remember 'World Theater' had just opened. Security was not too good and we stormed gates and got in. I remember being so thrilled to finally be in, since it was one of the only shows that tour I couldn't ticket for. RIP Brent

what a fool i was for not going all 3 nights
first night of this run was my first ever - lightning right between the eyes! man ... and it still gets me that i only got tickets for 1 night because - of all things - i had work on Monday ... the fool i am! Brent was the best.

Never Trust a Woman......
Let's set the record straight..... I was 19 yrs. old. HA! Just kidding, but dead serious.
The end of a LONG summer tour..... a SMOKIN' summer tour.
Brent was on fire this night.... one for the road?
Ah shit.... what the hell?
Brent.... we miss you dearly! R.I.P.
i was a 19 year-old 3 years "converted if you will" and somehow i managed to get in the 2nd row right between bobby and jerry. it was a very surreal vibe even without psy assistance which i didnt do that night. but brent's energy was completely out there, i couldnt believe how ballistic he went during good times, that was probably my highpoint and the weird look of garcia staring at/through you above his dark glasses. oh yeah and blowing bubbles on stage while seeing billy and mickey laugh about it.
it was very hard for me to believe when i heard the bad news about brent a couple days later. he was so alive! well the music's out there its all in/out there
